Last weekend’s Cadet training and races

Published by under Cadets

Well done to the 23 cadets in 13 boats who endured the cold weather and gusting winds to complete two days of training and racing last weekend. The Cadets aged between 8 and 15 of all abilities practised their beating, reaching and running skills together with practise starts and finally completed a series of two laps races.

The Programme for the Cadet Training/Races led by Nick and Andras is published in the Cadet Tab under SAILING (on the left hand side), together with the Results. DON’T FORGET TO CHECK YOUR RESULTS, CADETS!!!!

  • The whole hour will be informal, with a short explanation, demonstration, then time for you to have a go with the experts on hand to help you out if you are knot doing it right or teach you tricks and tips to ensure success.

6 Club Picos

Over the winter season Chris Boshier and I have been refitting the club picos. They have new ropes, tillers and sails.
We are just waiting on a couple of parts and new trolley wheels. They should be good to go by the Easter weekend.
If you are planning to use one and I have not posted here that they are ready, please email me and I will confirm which one to use.
Thank you Chris for all your help.
